I know I am always talking about Cornwall ~ everyone who reads my blog or watches my work or even (if they are very lucky ;0) ) owns a piece, knows how influenced I am by my surrounding ~ a Cornish girl in heart and soul!!
I decided to feature some photographers work in a bid to show you what I mean ~ to see whether you can see what I see ~ or even feel.
Some of my fellow artisans (and great friends) have you used these sentences to describe my work ~
The old kind of magic, the magic of druids and nature and the Celts.
Your work is feminine yet rustic. I am in the woods with the sun peircing through the trees. The magic of the trees are whispering to me. Then I am transported to the ocean and the waves sing softly to me.
I think woodlands, craggy seashores, stormy seas
what I imagine Cornwall to be like: earthy, magical, rugged, wooded, and with dramatic sea coasts
Don't you just love it when folks can see what you are trying to put into your work!!
Anyway, one artist I really must show off to you is Ben Ellis ~ his work doesn't show just the beauty of Cornwall beaches but everything from the hundreds of steps on a coastal path, to the stormy seas, river and creeks, abandoned mines and woodlands.
|Here's some of my favourites from Ben's work ~ you find more of his work on Etsy or on his personal website .|
